Exclamation Firefox keeps renaming my files

Hello,

Firefox 64 bit (Namoroka 64 bit) keeps renaming my files every time I download them. It adds a (x) suffix to my files, which is very annoying.

Here is how it goes:
I download a file, it keeps the original file name.
But watch this: I delete the file from the folder it was downloaded to, I download it to the same folder and it renames it to myFile(1). Same for the next times: myFile(2), myFile(3). Remember, the original file is no longer present, yet it renames it like there was some file name conflict, which there isn't.

So why does it keep doing this and how do I fix it?

Thanks

In the download history, right click on the file and remove from list.

You've deleted the file from the drive as well as the download list and this did nothing? Next step would be to clear the browsers cache.
